Throwing Down My Gauntlet

I think I might have thrown down a gauntlet before, it doesn't matter, I had a spare.  I thought it was time that a status quo diary was written, so that we could become the aggressors.  Passively waiting as people try to trade dear sweet Travis Outlaw, for some guy who is just going to clog up an already crowded position, is no longer acceptable. 

I just walked to my lanai and shouted at the top of my lungs, "Don't {expletive deleted} trade Travis Outlaw."  (I really did, it was kind of awkward, and I was nervous, even though I'm on the 17th floor.)  The Trail Blazers are not winning a championship next year.  I want them too, I really do, it is just not going to happen.  Sooner or later, they are going to run into a talented team with more experience. 

Two new dynamic players are going to be added to the roster, in Greg Oden and Rudy Fernandez.  There is also the potential for a talented draft pick to be added to a team, that won 41 games.  Name one team in the NBA that would not gladly, add just one of those players, draft pick included.  Can't do it, can ya? 

In conclusion, there is no need for a dynamic trade.  The only trade that should happen this summer, is to clearly define roles.  I can handle the current roster with Oden, Fernandez, and the draft pick for one year as well.  So if you're going to propose a trade this summer, I'm here to tell you, you're on notice
